Evan Funke should be opening Bucato in Culver City’s Helms Bakery District any day now. Until he does, the Rustic Canyon and Milo and Olive alumnus is cruising around in a pork-based mobile kitchen known as the Porchetta Truck. Funke’s keeping it simple on-board, offering only a porchetta sandwich (pictured) with one option: a perfectly fried egg.
Hound Mattapoisett in LA recently tracked down Funke and his crew on a street in Santa Monica. His advice? Plan a visit soon, before Bucato opens and the truck comes to a permanent halt. The sandwich is startlingly good, the meat a perfect blend of crispy, fatty, and meaty. And, though Mattapoisett’s generally a fan of egg toppings, he thinks it isn’t necessary here—it sort of overpowers the porchetta’s lovely rosemary and fennel flavors.
